    I'm a little confused as to what exactly do I have to do in order to receive these free games for early adopters...

    Is it enough if I just click the eShop icon and wait for it to load ? And maybe download some free videos/games ? I got Pokedex, but I haven't downloaded any paid content yet.

    Or do I actually have to register somewhere with personal details, enter my VISA card number or something ?

    Thanks.

    Load up the eshop, go to the news section, if it says anything about it, you;re in.

    Do people lack basic reading skills? You even got a notification on your 3DS from Nintendo. You only need to visit the E-shop once before 11:59PM August 11th 2011. How hard is that to understand? [​IMG]

    I bet people would feel better if they had a giant flashing star to confirm it.

    The problem is there is no way to confirm if you're an ambassador or not (AFAIK), even when following the instructions. So yeah, a giant flashing star would be one solution.

    What if I logged in to the eShop BEFORE they announced the Ambassador program? Do I have to log in again, now? (I ask, because I am in Afghanistan with my 3DS and probably WON'T be able to log in again before time is up.)

    A lot of people also don't receive the notification either. I haven't, but I checked the News section in the eShop and I saw had the ambassador post. Some people wouldn't have thought it would be in the news.

    @Arras
    Yes there is a way to confirm, you log in to the Eshop, THAT'S IT, no magic needed, Load it, while on the internet, and YOU'RE A MEMBER.
    As long as your system ID was connected to the servers pre price drop, you're set.

    It's annoying seeing 20 of these threads every day.

    I know that. What I'm saying is that it would be nice if you at least got a message like "Congratulations, you're an ambassador" or something. For those who want to know for sure. And, it's not like I created the thread.

    Nintendo should set a email (if you have a linked Nintendo Club account to your 3ds)
    to the linked email(for the Nintendo Club account) for confirming that your ambassador

    that may be better

    If you log in in the eshop and go to the news section you'll find your "welcome to the embassador" post.

    The only way to really know is to go to the eShop RIGHT NOW and check the "News" button. (Scroll left from the home page)

    You may have not enabled eShop notifications.

    Yes, it needs to be enabled.

    Time is running out [​IMG].
    You just have to connect to eshop by tomorrow to be part of the ambassadors program.
    (to be on the safe site, download some of the free stuff lol).

    I also didn't have them enabled when the messages were first sent out. I'm not sure Ninty is going to do a second round of informing. This doens't mean you're not in the program however.
